HTEC is helping tackle climate change by Fueling the Drive to Hydrogen. HTEC designs, builds, and operates clean hydrogen fuel production, distribution, and fueling infrastructure for fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs).
Partnering with government, industrial gas companies, key equipment suppliers, automotive companies, and energy companies, HTEC delivers safe, reliable, convenient, sustainable and low-cost hydrogen to customers and consumers, how, when and where they need it.
HTEC’s business is focused on two core platforms:
• Infrastructure: establishing profitable H2 fueling infrastructure projects in target regions, paid for through a combination of government funding, private investment, the monetization of carbon credits, network-capacity payments, and fuel sales.
• Technology Solutions: providing technical services and products (developed and validated on the Infrastructure platform) in global markets where HTEC does not plan to operate infrastructure.
HTEC opened Canada’s first retail hydrogen fueling station (in partnership with Shell) in 2018 and is building a network of stations in BC to fuel the first 1,000 FCEVs rolling onto roads. Six of the stations will be operational in 2020. HTEC is a recipient of a Canada’s Clean50 Top Project Award for its work building the BC station network.
HTEC is also building a centralized hydrogen production facility in BC to make hydrogen from electrolysis and low carbon intensity hydroelectricity. Quebec’s first retail station began operation in 2019 and HTEC has plans to build a network in the province, similar to the one developing in BC. HTEC is also providing H2 fuel supply solutions for several heavy-duty projects in Canada and the United States of America.
HTEC is providing the hydrogen fuel and fueling infrastructure required to demonstrate truck operations. Participation in this project is helping HTEC develop commercial fuel supply solutions for heavy duty vehicles operating in cold climates.
“While heavy-duty vehicles represent only two percent of vehicles on the road, they produce almost a quarter of the emissions. Decarbonizing heavy-duty transportation represents an enormous opportunity for us to not only remove those emissions, but also drive down the cost of hydrogen for everyone through economies of scale. We’re proud to be part of a small-scale demonstration like this, to prove there’s a business case beyond the significant environmental drivers.”
